no remember 8 goes instead of y
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so 8= 15 + b
anonymous

-7= b
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
\(\bf{8=\color{blue}{-3}(-5)+\color{red}{b}}\)
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
yes correct b = -7
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
so you have the slope -3 and y-intercept -7

what would the formula be?

\(\bf{y=\color{blue}{m}x+\color{red}{b}}\) slope = m = -3 y-intercept = b = -7

3x + y = − 7

  • anonymous
?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3x − y = −11 3x + y = − 7 . 3x + y = 5 x + 3y = 3
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
\(\bf{y=\color{blue}{-3}x-\color{red}{7}}\)
